Monday Musings: Favorite Quotes
Ever since reading Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project about five years ago, I've collected my favorite quotes. I keep them in my handy bullet journal, and review them regularly. I appreciate each of them for different reasons, but I hope they inspire you too!
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength."
"Comparison is the thief of joy" -- Theodore Roosevelt
"Look for happiness under your own roof."
"The days are long, but the years are short."
"You don't have to figure out what you want to do forever. You just have to figure out what you want to do next."
"Choose the bigger life." --Gretchen Rubin
"People first, then money, then things." -- Suze Orman
"If you propose to speak, ask yourself: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?" --Buddha
"One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life. The word is love." --Sophocles

I strongly recommend the practice of keeping your favorite quotes handy and scanning through them to remind you of inspiration or thoughts that mean something significant for you.
